The main reason why President Obama won the last election of American is because African remember their roots and despise of the shames and ill treatments from the past, " The Blacks " press on and on and on decades from one generation to another generation, they NEVER give up. Many times " The Blacks " came close to be defeated, and totally lost and suppress in the past, though they have failed BUT they NEVER GIVE UP.
Miss universe, the beauty pageants, the WORLD runners, the boxers, the swimmers , basketball players etc, etc; so many examples including many actors and actresses, singers e.g.- Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey , Robert Sylvester Kelly, Lionel Richie, Whitney Houston, musicians -Louis Armstrong , Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, etc. just to name a few of those who excel in many areas.
Although they are on top of the world, they are famous, they are successful, they are wealthy. BUT " ONE " thing they have in common is " UNITY " . No matter where they are in the world when they in need of help or facing trouble, the "Black" get together and help each other. They acted as a family and " TOGETHER " they fight for their rights. In life, most of them never, NEVER forget their ROOTS.
What about Chinese in the world for example in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, USA, Europe countries ??? They treat themselves as migrants. They love fighting with each other when " UNITY " is needed at time. They work hard for own reputation, own wealth, own success and worldly positions.
Then what happen ???
They start migrating again to another country. MANY of them have forgotten their " ROOTS ", some of them are " xxx born Chinese " BUT betraying their own races because of money, wealth and positions. A son betraying his father, a wealthy brother left the poorer or the poorest ones to be shamed by others, one sister has no regard for another sister, etc. I see lack or totally " NO UNITY " in some matter of family, political issues, social welfare, country. Sometimes Chinese can act even as a coward when they are facing the strong oppositions in life. Shame to say, some even betray their own people in order to gain short term survival. Don't you know My brothers and sisters, we all are the pilgrims on earth, our eternity home is shall be in heaven. O LORD, bring awakening and revivals through out the global for Chinese. The time is short, LORD Jesus is the only hope, HE is the TRUTH, the WAY & LIFE.

The most heart breaking issue is when someone get up on top of the world, get well known, rich, many of them forgotten their " ROOTS ", mother tongue, own languages, ancestors came from China., etc. Many even feel shameful to tell others of their own roots and called themselves " I was born in western country and I have been WESTENTnised". " I am shameful to remember my origin from China because they are so poor ..." , Is this sound familiar to you ? "I born in Malaysia, my son has migrated to Australia, and my grandchildren study in UK & USA. Our family member are all over the world but I do not have the history of my ancestor, I don't think the "ROOTS" is an important issue.... The important things in life is ------ successful, big house and cars, lot of $$$ in the bank. Let the $$$ take care of the matter " ..... soon you will hear your son or your grandchildren telling you " Who is grandpa? Where is he from? Where am I from? Malaysia ? Australia? USA? but I born in UK, Which part of the world is China ??? " Sighed !!!
Without remembering your ROOTS, Chinese were, some still being treated with ill respect by other races. WE Belongs here, in this world because God have created here. A family which forgotten their "ROOTS" or willing to sell of their own birth right will not last long for next generation ....... they are just like the floating lotus without a deep root in the rivers and they will only able to survive by floating everywhere as the water flow. And they will soon lost trace of who are their ancestor, where is the " ROOTS " ??
YES ! ROOTS, Where is your ROOTS ???? Hold on to it, and you will live a life with integrity and honor, no regret. I know I will, I want to be proud to be a Chinese, for this generation and for many generations to come, WHAT ABOUT YOU, my friend?
